Format: DVD
Since the beginning, Saturday Night Live has always given us brilliant holiday sketches. This collection combines the classic original cast, right up to recent casts of the late 90's.

The list of skits includes:

Candace Bergen interviewing Dan Ackroyd as ruthless toymaker Irving Mainway who sells toys like "Bag O' Glass" and Johnny Switchblade Punk action figure.

John Lovitz who has to fill-in for Santa Clause playing Hanukah Harry...

The Classic Alec Baldwin on NPR radio sketch discussing his Shweaty Balls with Molly Shannon and Ana Gasteyer...

Steve Martin doing his fireside.."My Wish for Christmas.." routine...

John Belushi as a drunken mall Santa...

The Lost Ending to "It's a Wonderful Life"

Gasteyer as a topless Martha Stewart...

Eddie Murphy doing a "Mr. Robinson's Neighborhood" bit...

Adam Sandler doing his usual Hannukah song...

All good fun and most of it very good.

Each and every year, I look forward to SNL's holiday special. There are so many hilarious bits that've aired over the years that the show never disappoints. Naturally, when this DVD was made available, I bought it right away.

Now, for my money, this DVD is worth it for the "Dysfunctional Family Christmas Album" ad alone, but there are lots of other bits that are fantastic, too. Eddie Murphy's classic "Mr. Robinson" is great, as is Steve Martin's "Christmas Wish". No SNL Christmas DVD would be complete with Candace Bergen & Dan Aykroyd in "Consumer Probe" (featuring Dan Aykroyd as the head of Mainway Toys, makers of "Bag O' Glass" and "Johnny Switchblade: Adventure Punk"), or the original "Not Ready For Primetime Players" singing "Winter Wonderland". These sketches are featured along with Adam Sandler's "Hannukah Song" and Jon Lovitz in "Hannukah Harry" (yes, it IS on the DVD, contrary to some other reviews posted).

Like many other reviewers, I was very disappointed that the classic "Sweeney Sisters" Christmas sketch (featuring William Shatner) was not included. In my opinion, "The Sweeney Sisters" bit was one of the funniest things ever on SNL and to exclude this sketch from the DVD seems completely ridiculous. For this reason, I can't give the DVD full marks.

It's a great DVD, though, and I get a lot of laughs every time I watch it. Definitely worth the money.

Excellent collection of skits that will get multiple viewings out of any SNL fanatic. A reviewer mentions that there's no "Haunaukah Harry" skit; don't worry, it's definitely there ("on Hershal, on Moshe, on Shlomo!!").

What's here is great, but there are so many more to include. Someone already mentioned the lack of Sweeney Sisters. There was also a great Christmas "Mommie Dearest" skit with Gilda Radner & Jane Curtin that I'd love to see. If I'm not mistaken, there was also an "Uncle Roy" themed Christmas skit. I don't believe there's any Will Farrell on here, nor are there the Christmas Greetings from Frankenstein, Tarzan and....I forget the third person.

Release part II!!!

This SNL Christmas dvd is one you'll want to treasure every year around Christmas time. There are some classic skits on here dating back to the early day's of John Belushi and Chevy Chase, while also providing some x-mas skits through the 90's with Chris Farley and Adam Sandler and so on. I really enjoy all the skits on here so much that I just pop in the dvd and let it play in it's entirety. A great video to own in your library, trust me when you have friends and family over for the holidays, play this video for them and they will love it.

This video was pretty funny. It had mostly newer stuff. I would have liked to have seen stuff from the earlier years. Also, a sticker on the package advertises that the Hanukah Harry skit with Jon Lovitz is on the video, but mysteriously it is nowhere to be found! I am certain there is more material they could have put on this 65 minute video.

If you love the original castoff SNL, you will love this DVD. There are lots of episodes with the original, but also included are some of the newer Christmas skits.... All are great, and never disappoint when you want a good laugh.

This disc does have many of the classic SNL holiday skits, including Schweddy Balls and D*ck in a Box, and Mr. Robinson's Neighborhood. But for literally a few pennies more, you can get the A Very Gilly Christmas disc with all of these and another half dozen skits. Yes, you do have to put up with one of Kristen Wiig's most annoying characters, but hey, it's Christmas. You'll enjoy every bit from The Church Lady's Rockin' Drum Solo to The Dysfunctional Family Christmas.

I'm a pretty big SNL fan. I don't get to watch as much as I'd like to anymore, but it's the most consistent funny show on tv. The SNL Christmas special is a great DVD.
It does have some notable skits. I love the skit with Alec Baldwin and the NPR ladies. It's so funny because all of them play being so serious so well. I laugh so hard every time I see this skit.
I liked the Martha Stewart topless christmas. She is such an easy target to make fun of and they do it great in this skit. Martha Stewart is annoying because of the way she talks and the way she presents herself. They spoof it so well in topless christmas. It's one of the better skits on the dvd.
All the skits with old SNL members are great. Dan Akroyd is one of the funniest guys to live and his skits as the toliet paper saleman and the toymaker are great.
Are two favorite SNL drunks Farley and Belushi both have some good stuff there fans should like.
Adam Sandler does the Hannakuh song. It's not the best version of the song, but it is the original and what a funny song it is.
I love this DVD. It's one of the better best of's they've made and I'm glad it's part of my collection.
